#HashtagLunchbag was born on Christmas Day 2012 in a Los Angeles apartment with just a small group of friends. The intent was simple- to deliver a hearty & balanced meal, prepared with our own hands, to our local homeless community. We all chipped in a few bucks, took a trip to the grocery store and purchased some goodies, invited friends over to put everything together, turned on some music and then hit the streets, all while having the time of our lives doing it!
In typical fashion of this day & age, we shared our adventure via social media, tagging #HashtagLunchbag on each status update and photo upload. All of sudden, people started hitting us up asking what #HashtagLunchbag was and how they could be included the next time around. That's when we knew we were on to something big.
Living in an era where digital media reigns & word-of-mouth chatter circulates to a much larger audience, we realized that our grassroots efforts have the potential to go viral and that every individual has the power to influence their friends & followers to pay it forward.
Our goal is to inspire others to come together and join us in our endeavor. We truly believe that small actions from lots of people can empower a BIG CHANGE.
